The “We” In “I”
In this thought provoking talk, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks argues that in today’s world we worship ourselves. From the emphasis we place on self-help to selfies to online filters which reinforce our world view… we are all about ourselves. And self worship… ultimately leads to world destruction.
But it doesn’t have to be that way, it’s all in our motivation. Grab that self-help book to be a better citizen. Take that selfie to make someone else smile. And as for the bubble we create of others just like us… let’s pop it. Let’s make it our goal today to connect with someone who disagrees with us and see the good in them.
Ultimately we are social creatures. Alone we whither and together we thrive.
